In Unifob AS the group of Igor Berezovsky is looking for a highly motivated candidate for a three-year PhD position in Bioinformatics/Computational Biophysics. The place of employment will be at Bergen Center for Computational Science (BCCS) within the Computational Biology Unit (CBU).

The research project will focus on the evolution of protein function based on the closed loop idea (for review see: Curr Opin Struct Biol 13, 110, 2003). The work will include analysis of structure-function relationship between proteins and their functions. It is also planned to consider one or several abundant protein folds as a case study in collaboration with an experimental group working on directed evolution of protein function.

The candidate must have a master’s degree in bioinformatics, computational biology, biophysics, structural biology or computational sciences. The candidate should also possess strong quantitative skills and be highly proficient in at least one of the following major programming languages: C/C++, Python or Perl.

The PhD student will enter an approved programme leading to the degree of PhD within a time frame of three years. It is a prerequisite, however, that the formal admission requirements for the PhD programme are met before appointment can be made.

The PhD student will also be connected to the Molecular and Computational Biology Research School.
